    Well, he was trying to be normal... and failed, and failed... and failed about as bad as any of them fail. From talking about sex to exposing himself on webcam to urinating while on webcam to wanting to watch the girl urinate to wanting to be her sexual "teacher." Daniel Allen, the grey-headed goof that he is, wanted it all.

    Of course, all he ended up getting is Chris Hansen in his face, some great airtime threatening to "shove those cameras down their throats" and then arrested during D3: Riverside. Charged, he knew he had little to do other than plead guilty. Now he is sentenced to 3 years in prison, 36 months, along with sex offender registration. This is our second conviction and sentence stemming from Dateline 3, both sentences have included some serious jail time.

    We seriously revile this scumbag and three years couldn't have happened to be a better guy.

    Notes from the Contributor, Chandra Chai
    I was first IM'd by trying_2b_normal on Christmas day. It was rather disturbing to say the least to think of someone seeking out a young girl on Christmas. He got sexual fairly quickly and seemed to be at ease. He kept repeating how much he wanted to be with a young girl.

    Daniel pled guilty fairly quickly. It wasn't all that surprising as he certainly knew what he was doing was wrong. From asking about archiving, to asking repeatedly if I was "going to get him in trouble." I gave him many opportunities to change his mind, but his overwhelming desire to be with a young girl overcame any risks that may have been involved.

    I'm very glad it was me and not a real child he was chatting with.


    This is our 65th conviction since June of 2004 and our 25th conviction for the year 2006 thus far. This is just another in a long line of individuals that will be going down for the count out of our various Dateline stings. It's nice to once again prove the naysayers wrong whom claim that these guys will face no prison time... they will, and are. Our evidence is solid, persuasive and damning.

    And just imagine, these are the guys that are pleading guilty... just wait until a couple of those arrested make the mistake of trying to fight the charges. Should be even more interesting sentences then!
